About the property

Private waterfront property with 2 cottages, rec room and 10-person hot tub.

Pine Place on the Lake is located on 450 feet of waterfront on the southeast corner of West Twin Lake (all-sports lake) in northern Michigan near the town of Lewiston. Entering Pine Place on the Lake, the driveway entrance creates the feeling that you are entering your own private village with plenty of opportunity to play inside and out. Guests stay in two charming cottages:

Yellow Cottage: The Yellow Cottage is decorated with warmth and charm and is a place where families can enjoy being together while watching beautiful sunsets. The Yellow Cottage features: 3 Bedrooms (2 Queen + 1 Full), 1 ½ Bathrooms, Living Room, Full Kitchen, Wood Burning Fireplace.

Blue Cottage: The Blue Cottage is a nostalgic place, reminiscent of those “up north” vacations of yesteryear. Knotty pine walls, stone fireplace along with a modern kitchen and bathrooms summon warm memories in a rustic “Cabin by the Lake” style. The Blue Cottage features: 3 Bedrooms (1 King, 1 Queen, 1 Full), Convertible Bed, 1 Twin Bed, 2 Trundle Beds, 2 Bathrooms, Living Room, Loft, Wood burning fireplace, Full Kitchen.

Both cottages are complete with full kitchens, washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, blender, utensils, dishes, glassware, pots & pans, towels, linens and gas grills.

Weekly rentals only from June 1 through August 31 (both cottages). Two-night minimum for off-season rentals. Contact us for nightly and weekly individual cabin rates, which can be rented separately in the off-season. (Please note that the recreation room and hot tub will be shared among all guests if the cottages are rented by separate parties during the off-season).

While here, enjoy our 10-person outdoor hot tub, recreation room with pool table and ping pong, fire pits, shuffle board, horseshoe pits, kayaks and paddleboards. Sunbathe on the dock after cooling off with a swim in the lake. There is no beach area, but the water is very shallow and the bottom is sandy out to the end of the dock. Sink a line and catch walleye, small mouth bass and perch. Pontoon boat rental is available on site and jet ski rentals are available nearby. Guests of Pine Place have their own private dock.

Winter at Pine Place on the Lake is a time of unsurpassed beauty as ice fishermen construct their shanties and dogs slip and slide across the frozen surface. With a short two-mile ride, you can hit the Michigan snowmobile trail that connects the Upper and Lower Peninsulas. Downhill and cross country ski resorts are 30 minutes to an hour away.

We are a 30 minute drive from Gaylord, Grayling, Mio and Hartwick Pines and just ten minutes from the spectacular Garland Lodge and Resort with its four beautifully maintained 18-hole golf courses. Nearby you’ll find restaurants, antique shops, ice cream parlors, biking, tennis, miniature golf, grocery store, drug store, hardware stores, gas stations, and more.

Just have to keep in touch? WiFi and cell phone services are available, if you must.

Come stay with us and see why our guests call it a little piece of heaven!

About Lynel & Lance Harding

Pine Place on the Lake is family owned and operated. Larry and Kendra Harding loved the property and spent years working to turn it into the beautiful place that we enjoy today. We are proud to carry on their legacy and love that we can share our special little corner of Northern Michigan with other families. We invite you to make a Pine Place on the Lake vacation one of your family traditions.

Why Lynel & Lance Harding chose Northern Michigan

Driving into Pine Place gives you a feeling of being in your own village. The property is very private yet there is plenty of room for everyone in your group to spread out and enjoy their favorite activity. Each cottage is decorated in a true 'up north' style that makes you feel comfortable and at home all year round. You can enjoy a game of pool or ping pong in the rec room or try your hand at one of our many outdoor games. West Twin Lake is an all-sports lake, so you can enjoy your favorite water sports and outdoor activities in the summer. We have a pontoon boat on the dock available for guests to rent. Fall is great for leaf peeping and golf. Winter activities, such as snowmobiling and ice fishing, are abundant. For those of you who just want to relax, there are plenty of places to curl up with a good book or just enjoy the view. We have free WiFi for those of you that need to stay connected.

What makes this cottage unique

After a day full of activities, we relax enjoy the most amazing sunset views on West Twin Lake. We stop what we're doing and make it a point to watch them every night. It is truly a place like no other. We guarantee that once you've been here, you'll want to come back again.

average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

Pine Place on the Lake is a beautiful and wonderful private property that our group of 15 loved!

  • 5 of 5

Lance and Lynel were the most gracious and accommodating hosts that one could wish for, constantly asking if we needed anything.

The cottages and recreation building are very charming and all were very clean upon our arrival.

There is abundant out door space providing ample room for kids of all ages to enjoy, and the gorgeous sun sets never disappointed. And, once the sun finished setting the number of stars that could be seen was awe inspiring.

Our group is already looking at our 2017 summer schedules to see when we can all gather again and return to this truly wonderful property.

Serene, perfect Northern Michigan experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Pine Place on the Lake! Our vacation served as a mini-family reunion, which included people ranging from age 1 to age 95, and everyone had a great time. While the weather didn't cooperate the whole time, there was plenty to do when it rained, thanks to the ping pong table, pool table, and board games in the games cabin (aka the "rec room"). The hot tub was also nice when it was cooler during the evening.

We did have a few sunny days, and we kayaked and paddle boarded on the lake (the water is calm enough that even an amateur like myself could enjoy it!).

The sunsets are absolutely breathtaking, and we were able to enjoy several (again, while the weather cooperated!) from the dock and patio in front of the yellow house.

We will definitely be back again!

Better than Advertised!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family (parents, sibs, nieces, nephews) spent a week at Pine Place. We rented both of the cottages. The cottages were absolutely beautiful and the grounds were lovely. I felt like we were in our own little village. There was so much to do right on the property that we rarely left. There is also enough room for you to find a quiet place to read, relax or nap if you are so inclined. We had people with ages ranging from 5-79 and everyone found fun things to do. We will definitely be returning!

Spacious and absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we had hoped, and the description of the property was spot on. Our location was convenient for planning day trips, but since this was our first visit to the area, we chose to simply enjoy the beauty of Twin Lakes. There was plenty of room for our large family to spread out, as well as gather in one location. The cottages were clean and comfortable, providing all the amenities of home. Lance and Lynel were the perfect hosts. They offered wonderful suggestions for local attractions, and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. We can't wait to visit again!

Beautiful grounds, well appointed facilities

  • 5 of 5

The grounds are very well maintained and attractive with lots of run around space for kids and games. The cottages are up to date, comfortable and all appliances work great! The game shed was a lifesaver during a day and a half of rain and cool temps (bunch of kids from 10 down to 4). The hot tub, lake side 'deck', dock, kayaks, paddle boards all were a hit. We spent lots of time at the lake and on the dock. A very enjoyable week. Lancy and Lynel are very friendly and generous.

Serenity Now!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to escape that connects you with all things nature combined with a quiet, clean and affordable night's stay - this is your place. I had such a great time vacationing in this spot literally steps away from the lake.

I stayed in the House adjacent to the lake which has a full kitchen, full bathrooms and a number of bedrooms that were beautiful and had the feel of a very chic cabin. It gifts a unique experience that far exceeds other hotels/motels in the area. Especially Garland (which I've stayed at and was underwhelmed by the service). Plus, the owners (Lynel and Lance) were a joy to work with.

If you're considering this property - consider yourself already at a home away from home!
